Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a currently certified teacher in the Commonwealth of Virginia, with an endorsement in Elementary Education K-6.

ESL/ESOL

I taught English as a second language as a Peace Corps volunteer. I also speak enough Spanish to converse with the student in his or her own language.

Guitar

I am a professional singer/songwriter with one recording in distribution. I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I can teach several styles of guitar, and I'm particularly good with beginners, both children and adults.

Public Speaking

I spent the latter part of my law enforcement career as a public speaker and spokesman for my agency. I have addressed groups as large as 1,000 people. I have briefed at the highest levels of the military at the Pentagon.

Special Needs

I have a B.S. in Special Education from the University of Maryland, and three years of experience teaching in self-contained classrooms.

Study Skills

I have a B.S. in education. I'm experienced in public schools in Maryland and Virginia. I've worked with special needs students, and students who did not speak English.
